Description of problem:
tripwire fails during tripwire --check with a:

### Error: A bad index was encountered in file.

somewhere in the middle of checking.

I have done a clean install of tripwire and generated new database (--init) with
no error but I still get this when I go to check.

Any ideas what is causing this?

More info here.

This seems to happen across all redhat distros, not just 7.3.  I have also swapped out hard drives 
with no difference.  Right now, I suspect something in the motherboard/cpu combo or a (very) 
elusive bug in tripwire.

Linux installs and seems to run fine.  This is the only odd behavior that I have seen.  FYI, the 
motherboard is a SOYO K7VMP with an Athlon XP2500 cpu.  Anyone else have experience with this 
particular beast?

Oops.  I forgot to mention that this happens on a virgin 7.3 install as well as a virgin + updates 
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2004-10-22 09:50:31 EDT
The error means that Tripwire's input serializer stumbled upon a fatal
data inconsistency. I've not seen anyone with such an error before,
and I doubt it is a general issue with Tripwire.

Closing bug, since tripwire hasn't been shipped for so long, only in Legacy
